- The Tenerife International Film Music Festival will feature a “live-to-picture” screening of the horror film 'The Beyond', scored and performed by composer Fabio Frizzi.
- The concert will be held on September 22nd at Infanta Leonor Auditorium in Los Cristianos.
For its eleventh year, the Tenerife International Film Music Festival (FIMUCITÉ) will open at Infanta Leonor Auditorium in Los Cristianos with a tribute concert to Italian filmmaker Lucio Fulci. The festival will screen the film 'The Beyond' together with a live performance of the film's soundtrack. This 'live-to-picture' experience will be conducted by the composer of the score, the prominent Fabio Frizzi. This attractive and thrilling event is included in a varied program of concerts and activities to be held from September 22nd to 30th, thanks to the sponsorship of Cabildo Insular de Tenerife, the Canary Islands Government, and Santa Cruz de Tenerife and Arona City Councils.
This outstanding music show has successfully been performed around the United States and the United Kingdom, among other countries, within Frizzi’s Zombie Apocalypse Tour. The film 'The Beyond', considered to be Fulci’s most important movie, has an 18 rating due to its explicit violent scenes, Italian 80s horror signature.
'The Beyond' has become a cult movie some rankings place it among the best horror films in history, which contains some really shocking and violent scenes. Starred by Catriona MacColl and David Warbeck, the story takes place in a hotel in Louisiana, in the 20s, when strange incidents open a gate that allows the dead to come to the world of the living. Decades later, we see the consequences of those incidents when a young woman tries to renovate it and terrible “accidents” begin to happen.
This live-to-picture concert will be performed by Fabio Frizzi’s Band, featuring Alessandro Errichetti (guitar), Riccardo Rocchi (guitar), Federico Tacchia (drums), Alessio Contorni (keyboards), Roberto Fasciani (bass) and Giulietta Zanardi, one of the most prominent italian vocalists. Frizzi will receive one of the FIMUCITÉ-Antón García Abril honorary awards in recognition of his career. Tickets for this concert, to be held on September 22nd, at 20:00 h, will be on sale this week for €5 at Los Cristianos Cultural Center and at the box office of the theater.

Antonella Fulci, the filmmaker’s daughter, will visit Tenerife during the festival and will participate in the tribute FIMUCITÉ is preparing to celebrate the 90th anniversary of his birth (1927-1996). This tribute will include a retrospection of his filmography, organised in cooperation with Filmoteca Canaria.
Lucio Fulci began his film career with comedies and criminal thrillers, eventually specialising in horror films such as 'Zombie 2' (1979), 'City of the Living Dead' (1980), 'House by the Cemetry' (1981) and 'The Beyond' (1981). Filmmakers Quentin Tarantino and Sam Raimi have recognised the influence Fulci has had in their work.
Fabio Frizzi has composed the soundtrack of more than seventy films and several TV series. Throughout his career, Frizzi has written music for very different genres, but his greatest recognition has come thanks to his artistic relationship with both director Lucio Fulci and horror films.
